    Don't look for any leadership in the Obama administration. Hillary was all over the map in her brief address and so far the president seems to be in hiding until the situation resolves itself and he can take sides (presumably with the radical muslems). The Egypt crisis will no doubt impact American oil prices. A barrel of crude went up $4.00 in a couple of hours. American lefties might support a radical anti-Israel coalition.

    I'm on the side of not giving them hard-earned American Tax Dollars anymore. The Middle East is a real mess. Lets get the Hell out of there. Is aggressive Foreign Interventionism really working for us?

    Although I can't wait for the obama to go away, this is a pretty fucked up situation, and I don't envy him.

    Watch though, the media will finally notice fuel prices are up and here's the reason.

    It's not our fight and we give them too much of our hard earned dollars. True enough but you have to expand your thoughts. Thanks to policies mostly instituted by democrats America has to take sides and has to keep sending our hard earned money to the mid-east. The president tells us that alternate energy sources are right around the corner but we are spending our great-grandkids money buying oil from the mid-east. Think lefties....there is no substitute for oil. Oil equals power in the world market and the fool in the white house tells us that the stuff is evil. We need to be independent of foreign oil while we look for alternate sources of energy.

    Oil prices are already skyrocketing. This turmoil will only make things worse. Have you been paying attention to your local gas prices lately? They continue to rise rapidly. Where is all the MSM outrage over this? The answers is simple...DA BOOOOOOOSH isn't in there anymore. The MSM in our country is incredibly corrupt. It's all just a Hopey Changey fantasy for them at this point. Gas prices will continue to rise but don't count on our corrupt MSM to feign outrage this time around. It is what it is unfortunately.
